NIS America and Google Stadia came together this morning to reveal four epic JRPG titles will be coming to the platform. Three of those games will be coming out in April as you'll be getting the real-time combat of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA (April 1st), the turn-based combat of Trails of Cold Steel III (April 1st), and Trails of Cold Steel IV (April 9th). Later this summer, the fourth game will be added to the mix as Stadia players will be getting Ys IX: Monstrum Nox. That's a pretty big mix of games coming to the platform from one developer, all of them popular in their own right as the genre has just gotten a boost for players currently digging on Google.
